Album Notes
THE FLOATING WORLD now available on CD with bonus track 'One More Time' from

This is for everyone wanting something a different to the usual grind.

The debut album IN THE REALM OF THE SENSELESS was released May 21st 2007.

Sam hooked up with Mithras drummer Leon Macey in 2008 and started work on the followup album THE FLOATING WORLD. They aimed to have it out in 2009 but Sam's relentless perfectionism pushed the album back into 2010, then 2011, and now 2012. The lyrics and vocals alone taking a year to write and practice, and it took two years of rehearsing as a duo to be able to perform the rhythm parts of the album.

Fast? Yes.

The new material is a mix of the most extreme death metal, the happiest mainstream, with a dollop of punch-you-in-the-face punk.

'The Floating World' turns its back on the current flow of extreme metal...the breakdowns, the monotonous sounds, the single-mindedly uncatchy songs, the lack of real passion...and gets a solid-gold collection of thunderous stand-alone songs that draw every genre of metal into a tornado of unique insanity. There's screaming, singing, growling; technical mindfuck passages mixed with catchy simplicity; serious hundred yard stare songs, punk pisstake rants; blasting over 300bpm with laid back grooveouts. It all flows. These are songs like metal doesn't serve you anymore.

The Senseless promise is always the same: this album will have at least two songs you hate. The rest will rock you right the fuck out.

The lineup is:
Sam Bean (The Berzerker/Wretched Pain) : vocals, bass, guitars, music, lyrics
Leon Macey (Mithras): drums
Solo contributions on the track 'Far From Over' are from Ol Drake (Evile) and Matt Wilcock (The Berzerker/Akercocke/The Antichrist Imperium).
Mixing and Mastering done by Leon Macey at Dreaming Studios
Vocal Engineering by Lee McKechnie at Northern Sounds

Calling Metal Out
Listen, Metal, we've been friends a long time. You've been there for me in both my lowest at highest times. You've brought out such passions in me and even taught me new ways to play my guitar. I could never possibly even contemplate counting how many hours we've spent together over the last couple decades. You're a dear old friend and you've always been there for me. However, lately, you've been a bit off. You've been hanging out with some real idiots who, I swear, have you regurgitating insultingly watered-down rehashings of your older doings in some strange mascara-covered self-depreciation. I've tried to look the other way, thinking maybe you'd come to your senses. You just have not. It is because of this that I'm holding this intervention. We care about you. We love you. We hate seeing you go down that path. Look, something needs to change. We want you to get help, to go into treatment. If The Senseless - The Floating World doesn't knock some sense into you, I don't know what will.
